My yellow jasmine is starting to bloom in my backyard! The name of this vine varies from Carolina jessamine, yellow jessamine, trumpet vine, evening trumpet flower etc. etc. Basically all one should know is that it is native to South Carolina and their state flower. This jasmine should not be confused with the decadent star jasmine that was my first introduction to jasmine while living in Spain. Ladies would put it in their hair behind the ear and depending on which ear the intoxicating jasmine was place would determine her availability i.e. single or take. Then men would walk on the opposite side of the square, flowerless.
